A spy in the house

Tue 28 Aug 2007, 03:06 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
It was four thirty in the morning, so we were quite surprised to hear a knock-knock at our door.  In came our almost twelve year old, and he looked worried.  He told us that he had been woken by our older son's phone vibrating, and that our older son had answered, then crept down the stairs and left the house.  Come to think of it, I am not sure whether he was worried that his brother was OK or that his brother would kill him when he find out he'd been ratted on.

But fortunately, his older brother had an excuse (this time at least).  Last night was the "first central total eclipse since 2000", according to NASA, and my son and his girlfriend were getting up early to see the spectacle, then go to her house for a waffle breakfast.  He had actually gotten permission from my wife the night before, unbeknownst to either me or my son.

Still, it is good to know my son wouldn't get past his light sleeping brother if he decided to make a habit of it.  Every family needs a good spy.
